Downloads for Unidata McIDAS are available for licensed McIDAS-X
sites via passworded (not anonymous) FTP only.

I see that you (        address@hidden) are registered with
the Unidata website and have been added to the list of sites/persons
allowed to download Unidata McIDAS.  You need to do the following
to download the package/updates:

- login to the Unidata website

- proceed to the McIDAS section of the Downloads pages

- download either the full v2009 distribution (which has all
  updates/bugfixes/etc applied) or the bugfix compressed tar


- make sure to put the bugfix compressed tar file in the
  ~mcidas/2009/update directory and run the script 'mcupdate'
  to uncompress the  bugfix/changed routines to their appropriate

- CD to the ../src directory and run the appropriate invocation
  of make (e.g., 'make', 'make mcx', 'make xcd', or 'make all')

> Thanks.

No worries.
